Bring circularity to your home

Create worm castings for your plants and garden

The Essential Living Composter is the 3rd generation of worm composters created by FCMP Outdoor.

Includes: Essential Living Composter (2 trays), coco-coir & newspaper bedding starter, instruction guide

Product design features:

  1. A moisture control water retention channel runs around the outside of each tray. Instead of allowing the liquids to fall directly through the tray this channel gathers moisture to prevent the bedding from drying out along the edges.
  2. When it’s time to expand your living composter a collection of 52 angled tunnels extend down from the base of each tray directly into the bedding of the tray below. This provides ample opportunity for worms to migrate between trays.
  3. Aeration is important for happy worms and good compost. A series of support points are molded into the lower edge of the trays. This raises the trays slightly allowing 360 degrees of airflow across the bedding.
  4. Composters are constructed from BPA free, UV inhibited, recycled polypropylene. The plastic is contact safe and will not degrade if outside under direct sunlight (though not recommended when active).

Additional notes from worm composting:

  1. When adding new tray layers for feeding, finished lower trays will contain worm castings. Use in potting mixes at 10-30% or feed 1/2-1 cup per plant.
  2. The liquid collected in the base is known as worm tea. Use the drain valve and mix 1 part tea with 1 part water to create an excellent fertilizer for plants.
  3. The speed and efficiency of the vermicomposting process (when fed appropriately) keeps typical composing odor to a minimum and allows the unit to be kept inside and used year-round. (keep between 15-25 celsius)
